Germany Results: Arslan upends Hill, Erdei tops Mendoza, Inkin beats Bruer

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

In Germany tonight, 37-year old Firat Arslan topped 43-year old Virgil Hill to win the WBA cruiserweight title, marking Hill's second straight loss. He also lost to 40-plusser Henry Maske in a non-title fight earlier this year.

Arslan (28-3-1, 18 KO) won a unanimous decision on scores of 118-110, 116-113, and 117-111. Hill (50-7, 23 KO) seems likely to retire. He has won just one of his last four fights.

WBO 175-pound champ Zsolt Erdei stayed undefeated (28-0, 17 KO) with a win over tough veteran Tito Mendoza. Mendoza (36-8, 28 KO) pushed it to a split decision, winning on one card, 117-111, and losing on the other two, 117-111 and 116-112.

Undefeated super middleweight Denis Inkin kept his perfect mark (32-0, 24 KO) with a win over Martin Abel Bruer (19-2, 12 KO). Bruer was winning on two cards after four rounds, 38-37, and had knocked Inkin down in the second. But the 29-year old Inkin rallied to score a decisive UD win, with scores of 117-111, 117-110, 117-110.
